No. 16/14 GW Routed at James Madison, 80-55
Minus Two Starters, Colonials Fall to Hot-Shooting Dukes
Nov. 27, 2007
HARRISONBURG, VA - Junior center Jessica Adair scored a game-high 21 points, but the No. 16/14 George Washington women's basketball team couldn't overcome playing without two starters and James Madison's four double-digit scorers in an 80-55 loss to the Dukes at the JMU Convocation Center Tuesday night.
Adair's jumper with 6:41 left in the first half tied the game at 21-21, but her and twin sister, Jazmine, both picked up their third fouls within the next two minutes, forcing the Colonials to dig deep into their already depleted bench.
James Madison (5-0) took advantage, closing the half on a 16-5 run to lead 37-26 at halftime.
GW attempted to rally to start the second half, slicing the deficit to seven, 43-36, on sophomore Stefani Munro's steal and finish with 15:29 remaining. The Colonials would not get any closer as the Dukes knocked down five second-half three-pointers to win their 29th straight at home and score their first win over a Top 25 team since 1991.
Tamera Young (20 points, 14 rebounds) and Jennifer Brown (16 points, 11 boards) both posted double-doubles to lead the Dukes. Dawn Evans hit four three-pointers and finished with 19 points, while Courtney Hamner came off the bench to add 12.
Senior Sarah-Jo Lawrence chipped in 13 points for the Colonials, who shot 31.1 percent overall and made just one of 15 three-point attempts. JMU capitalized on GW's small lineup, outrebounding the Colonials, 53-26.
GW next heads to New Orleans for the Four Points by Sheraton Invitational hosted by the University of New Orleans. The Colonials face UNLV on Friday and Samford on Saturday.
